  • 5.1Ac: Evaluate, select, and apply methods or processes appropriate to display artwork in a specific place.
  • Knowing you have the options of REALISM in colors or going out on your own in choices of colors… what do you see as advantages of the direction you are NOT planning on going?

Reflection / Evaluation: How do you see the plans you are developing as being successful? What ELEMENT are you focusing on? Line, Color, Texture, Value?

AP Studio Art: Critique!

Have you looked at the AP Studio Art Portfolio for Inspiration? Here are the AP Studio Art Portfolio Example Pages.



  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • We are listening to Erica Meier’s Gallery Talk today – As an AP Studio Artist who is DEVELOPING their OWN Body of work… What is a solid question you have that you can ask a contemporary artist about the development / process / working habits?

Relax Ma… It’s Only Fauvism… http://www.craftsy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/498px-Henri_Matisse_Self-Portrait_in_a_Striped_T-shirt_1906.jpg


  • G: 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Take a look at your previous week’s works – where did you struggle the most with the idea of the portrait? Where did you succeed the most? How do you use the ideas of chiaroscuro and color to better define the ideas of form (in the face especially)?

Reflection / Evaluation: What is the LARGER message that you are hoping to get across with your work? It is MORE than just creating a portrait… we could use a camera and do that.
